MNPS employees can submit MNPS School/District events to the district calendar. Submitted events must be approved by a calendar manager or administrator before they are posted to the calendar. You will be contacted via e-mail if your posting request is denied, or if the Calendar Manager needs more information from you before approving the request.
To learn what type events should be submitted to the district calendar, read the General Submission Guidelines below.

Avoiding Duplicate Entries
To avoid submitting any duplicate requests/entries by designating one person from your department or school to submit the event. If you do unintentionally submit a duplicate, please notify the Calendar Manager for your department or school. The Calendar Manager will remove one of the entries for you.
Editing Your Event Posting
